The POSM Horse is an
ancient animal. Associates of the not for profit American
POSM Horse Association ( A POSM HA ) are a dedicated few
individuals who seek to breed this God gifted animal for responsible
primary work on small family farms, homesteads,
ranches, in the woods and on the roads. Though we do not
all make our living entirely from such lofty goals, we are agreed as
to the type and that includes the POSM Horse
must be capable of primary work.
After all, that is what made Figure a standout.
Those who own POSMs celebrate their small size; good mind;
willingness to work; gentleness with children and the elderly;
stamina; hardiness; longevity; soundness; etc.. We use the POSM
Horse Registry to perpetuate the best POSMs we can breed. We
are not about experimentation with an animal whose worth has been
proven by people who used him to earn a living from the soil and its
directly associated endeavors. It is not intended as a status
symbol, but as a tool.
As strange as it may sound, in our present time of plenty and
leisure, this Association is about giving something back. It's
about preserving and perpetuating a noble little horse. Future
generations, with God's blessing of simple living by
stewardship of the land through localy
based family craft
farming within our own neighborhoods, may have need of
such a proven animal partner once again.
